The cart
spring
pendulum
system shown in
Figure 1
consists of a cart restricted to
motion on a straight and level track which is attached via a
spring to a fixed wall. A
pendulum is suspended from the cart
by a hinge so as to be constrained to the vertical
plane defined
by the tra
ck. The cart is equipped with a DC motor that exerts a
torque to a
small toothed wheel which, in turn, applies a force
on the cart.
For the purpose of
deriving a model, the
system is
considered
to be composed of a massless spring attached
to a frictionless
cart from which a slender rod freely
hangs
.
The output of the system is the position
p
of the cart, in meters,
relative to the spring’s
equilibrium point and the angular
position
of the pendulum,
in ra
dians, relative to the
vertical.
The physical
inpu
ts of the system are the voltage
u
applied to the armature
of the
DC
motor, in Volts, and a disturbance force
w
, in
Newtons. The force from the motor
f
, in
Newtons, is modeled
as
